The first time I took uceris, it worked okay. The following time, no results at all. I think uceris was able to keep things mild for me, but once things were beyond mild, moderate, it didn't help enough to seem like it was effective. For me, prednisone always worked within a few days, or worst case, about
a week. If things are mild, uceris is a great option. If they are beyond that, you might need prednisone. Uceris is great because the side effects are much more tolerable.
I had surgery though, and the thought of taking either drug is laughable to me. I hope to never consider it, but who knows what the future holds.
